Notes:

We have this tree here in New Port Richey that gets very few leave each spring, but thousands of beige colored berries that drop off and are doing so when we arrive from Canada in November and are still dropping now. I cannot find anyone here who can tell me the name of it. ||It is about 40 feet tall and has been there since about 1971.

    It’s a Chinaberry, a non-native invasive as identified by the USDA Forest Service. The berries develop after the flowers, providing food for birds. But the berries are not safe for humans to eat. Birds also experience temporary intoxication from the berries. These can be seen in Georgia along the interstate highways where birds deposit the seeds along fence rights of way.
